Publish Your Paperback on KDP (Beta)

We're excited to offer the opportunity to publish paperbacks in addition to Kindle eBooks. We'll be adding even more print-related features in the future, like proof copies, author (wholesale) copies, and expanded distribution to bookstores and non-Amazon websites. CreateSpace still offers these features, and KDP will offer them as well. 

Publishing a paperback can help you reach new readers. KDP prints your book on demand and subtracts your printing costs from your royalties, so you don't have to pay any costs upfront or carry any inventory.

Benefits of publishing paperbacks with KDP include:
  • Distribution: Reach paperback readers through Amazon websites in the US, Europe, and Japan.
  • Royalties: Earn up to 60% royalties on the list price you set, minus printing costs.
  • Rights: Maintain creative control and own your copyright with our non-exclusive agreement.
  • Get to market fast: Publish your paperback for international sale in just a few days.
  • 100% availability: Printing on demand means your book will never be out of stock.
Paperback Beta Participation Agreement.

If you already publish with CreateSpace, we invite you to learn more about moving your paperback to KDP. Note the differences between CreateSpace's service's and KDP's.

Important: CreateSpace still offers features like physical proofs, author copies, expanded distribution, and professional publishing services like editing, design, and formatting help (among others). KDP will add these features in the future.  

Note: KDP's paperback previewer uses the Adobe Flash Player plug-in. You should download and install the latest version.
If you already have it and the paperback previewer still doesn't work, you should update or enable it for your browser.
